When “errors” are not errors.

Amazon’s email to OSNOVA:

 

Hello,

We’re writing to let you know that at least one of your readers has reported some problems within your book [the KJV Bible], and we have confirmed the issue. … There are some words in your book that our spell check dictionary could not identify. … Here are the words and their locations

For example “cieling of wood; ” should be “ceiling of wood; “(loc:48522),”burglers” should be “burglars” (loc:48385),”sodering” should be “soldering”(loc:27757),

 

OSNOVA’s Email to Amazon:

Dear Amazon,
As always, we have carefully reviewed your report.  Given that we are dealing with the text of the KJV translation of the Bible, we have to faithfully reproduce all the spellings of its authoritative editions.  Neither you nor I are qualified to update the spelling of the KJV Bible to the modern standards or decide that the original text contained errors or misspellings.

In this particular instance, all of the reported “errors” cannot and should not be corrected even though they look strange to the modern eye because the original text had “cieling of wood,” “burglers” and “sodering.”  Please see the attached reproductions of the text of the KJV that served as the basis for our electronic edition.

I would appreciate if you would pass this information to the customer who reported these “errors.”

Thayer’s Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament: Coded with Strong’s Concordance Numbers

On the heels of the the Essential Greek New Testament we are releasing another Biblical Greek work: Thayer’s Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament for the Kindle.

The chief work of Joseph Henry Thayer was his translation of Grimm’s Wilke’s Clavis Novi Testamenti (1886; revised 1889) as A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament. Thayer spent 25 years working on his Lexicon, and made thousands of revisions from Grimm’s Wilke’s Clavis. Thayer’s Lexicon has been recognized as one of the best New Testament lexicons of Biblical Greek. This edition provides dictionary definitions and nuances of meaning for each word and provides a hyperlink for each word to the included New Testament and the Strong’s number.

 

UPDATE: This New Testament edition can be currently be purchased directly from OSNOVA by request via email. The price is $5.99.

English-French Parallel Bible; La Bible avec des Textes Parallèles (en Français et Anglais)

Several weeks ago, we released another parallel Bible; this time with English (KJV) and French (Louis Segond) texts.

La Bible avec des Textes Parallèles
English-French Parallel Bible

As usual, this Bible features:

– Direct Verse Jump and Direct Verse Jump 2, revolutionary two methods to open the exact verse you need in mere seconds (not supported by Kindle Fire)
– two other ways to navigate between books and chapters: (i) using a hyperlinked table of contents; and (ii) pressing the 5-way controller right or left to move between books or chapters of the Bible (this last one also is not supported by Kindle Fire). Once you learn all of the four navigation methods, you will be able to open any verse in your Kindle Bible as fast as (or even faster than) in your paper copy
– easy to determine where you are in the Bible

Complete instructions on how to use this publication are found at the beginning of the publication.

Please note that this edition is not TTS(text-to-speech)-friendly due to the way TTS works on the Kindle.

 

The book is also available from Amazon France (as in other Amazon stores) and Barnes & Noble (for Nook).

The Essential Greek New Testament for the Absolute Beginner

We are excited to release the Essential Greek New Testament for the Absolute Beginner (thank you, James, for the title).

This book represents a new approach to the study of the Biblical Greek by allowing an absolute Greek beginner to start “reading” the Greek New Testament from the first day. As such, it will establish itself as an indispensable resource for those who would like to get a glimpse of the New Testament in the original. The compilation of resources will also be useful to those who have some knowledge of Biblical Greek.
